Are These The Colleges With The Worst Return On Investment?

Whether you're looking for a tight-knit campus community, a specialized program, or that social buzz, there are a multitude of factors to consider when selecting a university. But, one thing most kids will likely agree on is the likelihood of post-collegiate job placement, because who wants to wander around penniless, after clocking in four, hard-won years in school?
So, consider the return on investment (you know, how much you’re actually getting out of the deal) when signing up for that school. Still stumped? Well, The Daily Beast rounded up the colleges with the worst R.O.I. to lend a helping hand. It considered the school’s ability to offer students a high-paid future for less tuition, the percentage of graduating students (within six years), and the salaries for both starting and mid-career professionals. Have a look at the full list, right here.
